Nike Flyknit Trainer “Dark Green”

The Nike Flyknit Trainer “Dark Green” is the latest version of a retro model that recently came back to us.

 

From the early days of Flyknit technology, the Trainer model has gone through its fair share of pop culture moments and has returned in truly great form. Thanks to a minimalist construction and quality materials, it’s been an easy sell in many storefronts. Also, it certainly doesn’t hurt to keep churning out so many fire colorways.

 

This latest look at the Flyknit Trainer sees the model take on one of its darkest color schemes yet. Unlike the “Oreo” iteration, there isn’t quite as much contrasting White sections to liven things up.

 

With that being said, this shoe doesn’t come without its own palette of color. The Dark Green hue adorns the majority of the upper, giving off some Olive vibes. A combination of Orange and White find a way to share space on the shoe’s outsole, serving as competent contrasts.

 

The Green isn’t without thematic purpose here. It looks like this colorway is releasing as a sort of “Camo” style iteration. We even see spray Camo on the accompanying lateral Swooshes, bringing together the three main colors of this edition.

 

Of course, this aesthetic should be no surprise considering the timing. With this being Memorial Day weekend, it’s a fitting time to drop these bad boys in this fairly traditional color scheme.

 

With most major brands putting out their own Memorial Day editions of several classic kicks, this is just one of Nike’s many efforts. The Flyknit Trainer is particularly capable of adopting this sort of aesthetic thanks in part to the dynamic Flyknit upper.

 

Whether you’re looking to get a bit patriotic or not, you can’t go wrong with this clean look for the Flyknit Trainer.

Nike Flyknit Trainer “Olive”

The Nike Flyknit Trainer has enjoyed its fair share of the revival vibes this year. Its latest rendition seems to match the season upon us. This Olive look for the popular Swoosh model brings together the tech and design we all appreciate, decked out in a versatile and somber color scheme.

Nike’s Flyknit material has been touted for a number of reasons. Among those is a seemingly limitless potential for boisterous colorways. Yet, it’s clear from this release that even darker tones are easy for the Trainer. Flywire cables are just barely visible as the main fit and support system here. The midsole is fairly unique, coming with little more than a cored-out build that makes for an incredibly lightweight shoe.

Finished off with a Black Swoosh, the Trainer is very reminiscent of another highly sought after Flyknit model. The Racer has debuted in some heavily hyped colorways, paving the way for Nike’s formula of woven uppers, sharp builds, and expressive colors. It’s this winning equation that makes the popularity of the Trainer easier to understand.

This featherweight instant classic is a solid choice for both the streets and actual training sessions. Don’t miss out!

Nike Flyknit Trainer Night Purple

Nike’s latest in lightweight running tech comes in the form of the Nike Flyknit Trainer. Seen here in a Night Purple scheme, we get a good look at arguably its most expressive look yet. Continuing a tradition of advanced footwear for runners, the Flyknit Trainer carries both the tech and the aesthetic that the modern running fanatic looks for.

As usual, we see Nike’s signature Flyknit cover the upper. This woven build has become extremely popular for a reason. It’s relative durability and style profile make it an easy choice for the stylish athlete. As lightweight as it is, the Flyknit upper also works to keep your foot snug as you conquer the concrete. It’s aided in this effort by the supporting Flywire cables that run along the lacing system.

Beneath all of this is the cushioning protection of Nike’s Zoom tech. Now more known for its work in basketball shoes, Zoom has been protecting runners’ joints from impact fo a very long time. It stands to reason that the Swoosh would opt to stick with it.

This Night Purple look may be relatively expressive, but it won’t be difficult to pair up with a crisp pair of jeans. It also is another example of the visual versatility of Nike’s Flyknit models. Style these how you see fit when they drop on November 3rd.

The return of the Nike Flyknit Racer Multicolor

Perhaps the most notable soldier in Nike’s battle for woven supremacy, the “Multicolor” Flyknit Racer makes its 2017 return. We saw this model make a comeback last year, with a somewhat subtly changed tongue. This time around, even the smaller details remain unchanged.

The shoe’s iconic knit build is in full display here, refreshingly adorned in vibrant colors. Flywire tech provides reinforcement for a cozy fit. In case you’re looking for more than style, the Racer also boasts its traditional waffle outsole, showing some solid traction.

Aesthetically, we see a minimalist take that opts more for a streamlined look. A Phylon midsole continues that theme, offering featherweight cushioning and a sharp finish. This shoe is famous for adding fuel to the current 1-to-1 fit craze that we see in the runners game. Following its experiments with the Nike Free, the Swoosh had reportedly received some feedback that yearned for more snug fits. The result? A pretty sleek release. Look for these on April 7th!
